Our goal is to strengthen men and their families in the Catholic faith. Formation in our faith goes beyond mere facts or religious practice to an authentic connection with a loving God and his son Jesus Christ. Programs in this category are designed to draw us closer to God and the Church in a tangible and meaningful way.
Many Councils may have taken a ‘little break’ over the last couple of months.
You’re rejuvenated & ready to get back into the good works (programs & activities) that you do in and for your Parish and communities.
2018/2019 was our first full Columbian year using the new Faith in Action programs model. In the Faith category, programs require planning & preparation to fully meet the criteria set out in the guide and, probably more so, to get the “most” out of the programs.
I would suggest/encourage each Council to –
- Select/appoint/volunteer a member to be your Council Faith Director (CFD)
- In consultation with the GK & CFD try to have a member lead each of the eight programs
- Meet with your Pastor/Chaplain for his input to plan and put into action the program(s)
This will lessen the workload on just 1 or 2 individual members.
Have a great year! Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.
